Air Canada and Air Canada Vacations have come together to secure the joint title sponsorship for this year's YellowBird Charity Golf Classic. 

The tournament will take place on May 17th, 2024, at Glen Abbey Golf Club with an 8 a.m. shotgun start. 

“We are very excited to be able to be a part of the planning for the YellowBird Tournament again this year. With last year's tournament being a tremendous success, we’re looking to raise even more this year and are ecstatic that Air Canada and Air Canada Vacations will be our joint Title Sponsor’s," said Cassandra Jackson, president of Reps4Rent. 

This will be the 24th year The YellowBird Foundation is hosting its charity golf classic at Glen Abbey Golf Club and are raising funds for the continued support of those suffering in Ukraine as well as those fighting poverty in tourist destinations with lower living standards than enjoyed in Canada.

“Air Canada is proud to partner once again with The YellowBird Foundation for this year’s tournament. This is an event that we are very excited to sponsor as our shared values perfectly align with The YellowBird Foundation in helping children and fighting poverty. This too is the focus of Air Canada’s own community programs on improving the lives of ill and disadvantaged children in the communities in which we work and live, so we applaud the YellowBird Foundation’s determination in their supports and are looking forward to having a joint sponsorship with Air Canada Vacations this year to help with this important work," said Lisa Pierce, vice-president, Air Canada global sales and Air Canada Vacations, in a news release. 

Nino Montagnese, vice-president, Air Canada Vacations, added: “Supporting our communities both here and abroad remains a priority for Air Canada Vacations, and we are proud to partner with The YellowBird Foundation to advance their mission of helping to improve the lives of those living in disadvantaged communities in tourist destinations across the globe. As guests in these countries, we have an obligation to give back and share our commitment to global citizenship.”

To allow non-golfers stay involved and take part in the charity online auction, a website will be launched again this year to purchase tickets, foursomes, sponsorship packages, donate gift baskets for a day of raffle, and bid on auction items. The online link is live as of February 23, 2024 for purchases. 

Along with the online auction, the tournament will be offering an in-person 50/50 draw, as well as gift basket raffle for attendees. 

Those unable to attend the tournament are encouraged to donate a raffle prize/gift basket, item for the online auction, or make a donation to support the cause.
